slowly, i have been working to restore the 2012 landlord(her tractor) actually, it started out as a way to use the pile of spare parts that have accumulated under the grapefruit tree. i figured i would get the frame and front axle cleaned and painted, then start swapping parts off the LL. it would also be a good chance to experiment, like putting the thrust bearings on the front spindles(turned out to be a piece of cake) and painting the battery area with the plastic paint(no idea if that will give extra protection to that area or not) "She Who Must Be Obeyed" doesn't really want her tractor so we talked about selling it when i finish the resto. The ?unexpected discovery of-be still my heart!-a good BGB :Din the 'stuff' means i can build a whole 'nother tractor! looks like all i'm missing is the lift shaft and maybe rear tires. don't know if i'll put the 10hp i just reringed on it or get one of the spare 12s running. and i have the 2012 to sell, too. wonder if i'll get to keep the money? 'course, at the rate that i work at, it will be another 3 months before i'm ready to actually sell either one.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
